Greg McKee

Investigators want the public’s help in identifying a suspect in a shooting Saturday at a rest stop on southbound Interstate 85 in Cabarrus County. The injured man has been identified as 43-year-old Greg McKee. In a statement, McKee’s wife says that her husband, a father of four, was paralyzed from the waist down. According to the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office, McKee pulled into a rest area near Dale Earnhardt Boulevard/Exit 60 around 7:45 p.m. with his wife and two children. His family was waiting in their vehicle. As he washed his hands, two men approached. One stood on each side of him, and one of the men showed a gun, according to an investigator at the scene. As McKee ran from the restroom, he was shot in the back. The two men fled on foot. An image of one of the men believed to be responsible was captured in the vending area, the investigator said. In her statement, Terrie McKee writes that Greg was a father of four and that the family’s lives have been changed forever. “In a senseless, random act of violence, my husband’s life, and our entire family’s life, was forever changed,” McKee writes. “We are now forced to deal with the ramifications of my husband being paralyzed from the waist down. While we desperately want these two men brought to justice, it is our fervent prayer that somehow they will come to know the only way to fill the vacuum that is in their empty hearts is by a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. There is no other way. “Greg and I have 4 children, all of whom have special needs ranging from autism to ADHD and diabetes and chronic migraines. Ages are 21 (autism), 18, 17 and 5. Now we must deal with getting our home handicapped accessible and dealing with my husband’s daily living needs. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mother with chronic pain myself.” She ended her statement by saying, “The depth of the pain, heartache and financial burden these two men caused cannot be measured.” The Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help identifying the suspect on video and is offering a reward of up to $1,000.
